The hotel staff was very nice, friendly and sometimes helpful.
This is unfortunately the only one good thing about this hotel...
Fist: Rooms are extremly small and dirty.
We got "as they call" a deluxe room... It was about 12 sq.meter with very small bathroom.
On the booking page it said it was 24 sq.meters.
The bed linens had spots on them and the room was rather dirty.
TV channels are only in Indonesian :) so you will get a good chance to learn it XD
Well, internet didn't work at all...
Bathroom is dirty too.
We stayed for three days and our towels were never changed....
Yeps, and btw we saw a cockroaches in the room!!!
The breakfast was very very poor.... bread, noodles, coffee and tea...

Room Tip: There are no good rooms in this hotel

I like hotel design and interior but located at bussy and trafic road at days time. Staff and security very friendly. Don,t know about breakfast because i missed it.
You can find many food stall and restaurant arraound this hotel just by few step walking. Try Garuda restaurant padang right side hotel it s highly recommended.
Every room has diferent style design that interesting to me.
Room was great but bit small, it s comfortable to sleep, even it have mirror on ceiling.

Negative:
-Bathroom clean could be improve
-No lift

Our stay at the Ro&Vi was a very memorable stay in all the wrong ways... Small, very small bedrooms with tiny bathrooms... No windows, and a bed sloping to one side, so you feel like you're falling out all night long.
Falling out would have been very unpleasant, seeing i might get wedged between the wall and the bed, and they would have had to dismantle the entire hotel to get me out, cause there is no space to manouvre yourself. Another unpleasant side effect of falling out of the bed could have been getting wet through and through, cause in the very first minutes upon our arrival my wife felt like taking a short shower... Within that time our bathroom and entire room got flooded! All our backpacks were still on the floor, so this was not a great way to start things out here... The staff promised us a new & decent room, but they just showed up with a mop.

Jakarta is a city that has very little to offer i think, but the best thing did in Jakarta, was checking out of this overpriced craphole!

This hotel was the worst travel mistake I ever made. Super tiny rooms with leaky miniature bathrooms, dirty towels, non functional toilet paper holder, crappy electricity plugs, conveniently non English speaking staff and bad breakfast. My room was on the 3rd floor so apparently that was the reason why I did not have the much advertised free WiFi..3rd and 4rth floor does not have WiFi. I had to Skype with my child and the solution provided by the reception staff was to go to somebody's room, Skype and return back to my room. The receptionist in spite of promising a reduced price for inconveniences caused to me conveniently did not understand English during check out. My room was towards the main road and was noisy and the aircon let out a strange ear piercing sound every 15 minutes.The corridor was so narrow that it would be a real safety hazard in case of emergencies..Do not stay there. The photos and reality do not match..Avoid Room 301..worst of the bad lot

Just drive bye don't stop, RUN fast! The hotel (if you can call that) bills its self as a boutique hotel. I guess that's because they put cheap Chinese furniture in all the rooms. It also doubles as a wall paper business which consumes most of the lobby LOL. The shower, sink and toilet are very convenient since the shower is directly over the both so you can multi-task if you don't mind all the mold! The rooms have no windows and the hotel has no fire extinguishers, that's a plus. The breakfast is FREE, only because no one would ever buy the slop they serve. What they call a mini bar is actually a wicker basket with 5 sodas. To top everything off, it is located over a bakery which encourages you to stay up late and party since you could never sleep with all the noise. Not to mention it stinks and is dirty. Other than that it was a great place to stay.

Nice hotel on one of the main roads of jakarta. It was nice with good beds. Was sometimes a little noisy during the night from other guests, but overall ok. Close to the gambir train station (20.000idr taxi), thats why we chose it. Close to jl. Jaksa by taxi as well.
